Why are we told to Limit Beef Consumption ?
We are told the main reasons are to help control our intake of saturated fats and cholesterol to protect our heart. Sounds like something we would readily accept.
But the real reasons are more diabolical than you can imagine. Europe has banned the use of hormones in beef production for decades. Read why. http://www.preventcancer.com/consumers/general/hormones_meat.htm
Yet our own FDA allows hormone use so cattle will grow faster and be ready for market in a shorter period of time. Cattle are also given antibiotics because of their crowded living conditions to ‘help’ keep them healthy until they are ready for market.

Since the FDA knows that hormones and antibiotics are bad for us but they can’t seem to limit their use ($), we are told to simply limit our consumption. Maybe that will help. It’s kind of like if we eat poison a little at a time instead of all at once we will live a little longer. Isn’t that thoughtful?
Have you noticed that ‘Little Girls’ seems to be maturing at an earlier age? Have you noticed that a lot of ‘Little Boys’ are as in touch with their feminine side as the little girls? Have you also noticed that germs & viruses are developing a resistance to antibiotics?
This is not simply due to nature, you know.
Continue following our future blog’s to learn more about how food affects our children. But back to beef consumption.
Our kids, girls and boys alike, are being bombarded with an overdose of hormones and antibiotics! When they were babies and you thought they were on a healthy diet of milk …. Just remember what those cows are being given.
But that’s only the beginning. Ever since those same kids started eating ‘real’ food, they ate beef, cheese and butter from cows that are given hormones, antibiotics and now many of them are getting fat eating a diet of genetically modified wheat and soy that is also loaded with hormones.
Even Angus does not escape this kind of cocktail. The only way to avoid eating these ‘Farm’ raised beef products is to feed your family organic grass fed beef that are ‘finished’ on grass. Learn why here - http://www.eatwild.com/basics.html
Buying organic grass fed beef directly from a local farm is the only way we are going to force change in our food production. Find a local grass fed farm here - http://www.eatwild.com/products/index.html
